52CCT - Pick a Previous ....

.... Hello! I've been enjoying our wonderful summer weather, sitting out in the sun and playing in the pool with Mum and Kat. And catching up reading too. It's been far too nice to sit in my craft room. However, I did take some time earlier this week to make my card for our new challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown - 52CCT30-16. We have five Saturdays this month which means we have a bonus challenge and Jacqueline has selected PICK A PREVIOUS 2016 SKETCH. I picked our February Sketch; here's my card:

Tis the Season - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Peaceful Pines
Inks: SU - Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry; Crumb Cake; Chocolate Chip
Dies: Lil Inkers - Stitched Panels; SU/Sizzix - Perfect Pines
Accessories; White Lustre Card; SU DP - Season of Style; SU/Sizzix EF - Softly Falling

I've been very faithful to the sketch, but I like Christmas trees, so it was fun. I've made a reasonably clean and simple card. I die cut a panel of design paper attached it to the card and then adhered another die cut and embossed white panel on top. I used my MISTI to position and stamp the sentiment in the top corner. I finished the front by adding the Christmas tree which was stamped on scrap white card and cut out with the matching dies. On the inside I cut another piece of the design paper for the mat layer and added a Christmas greeting to the white panel, along with another tree.

I'm submitting this card to a couple of challenges - Addicted to Stamps and More! - ATSM#204 has a CAS challenge, and Merry Monday Challenge - MMSummer is running a Christmas in Summer link up. For more inspiration do visit our blog to see more from the rest of the team.

No more crafting for me today. Mum and I plan to visit the shops for a bit of retail therapy!
